Nikola Jokic did something that hadn’t been done in the NBA since the 60s.

Nikola Jokic has been filling the stats sheet at a crazy rate this season and this has led him to match an NBA feat that the league hadn’t seen in 68 years.

Thanks to the numbers (35 points, 15 rebounds, six assists) he put in the Denver Nuggets‘ win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jokic became the only player after legendary Oscar “Mr. Triple-Double” Robertson to accumulate 150 points, 75 rebounds and 75 assists in the first seven games of the regular season (per NBA Stats). The Serbian big man currently has 169 points, 83 assists and 82 rebounds into 2020-21.

Yes, you read that right, Jokic, a center, has more assists than rebounds.

Robertson set this achievement twice in the 60s, first in 1961-1962 and then in 1963-1964. No player had managed to tie the “150-75-75” until Jokic last night (5/1).
